The Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA) has issued a Call to Artists for Detailed Color Paintings or Drawings of the exteriors of local arts venues to be used in a project with Pinellas County Schools.
WADA Art Tubs are a student-directed independent activity that allows students to explore a subject with materials in a tub. There are tubs for math, science and language arts – and our WADA Art Tubs project aims to create one for visual arts, to be used in art classrooms for grades K-5.
Our first WADA Art Tub project is a set of artisan-made architectural building blocks where students have the opportunity to create their own buildings, inspired by art-focused buildings in St. Petersburg.
We are looking for an artistically-detailed rendering of these 6 local buildings: The Dalí Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, The Palladium Theater, The Royal Theatre, The Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum and the Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement.
Artist Payment is $400.
WADA is looking to purchase the rights to a digital copy of your building image artwork for our WADA Art Tub Project under the following agreement:
- Image would be used in the creation of 12 tubs and would appear on the tub exterior at approx. 2 inches x 3 inches
- Image would be used in high resolution form for publicity of this project in which the artists will receive credit
- WADA would also reserve the rights to use this image in future duplications of this project.
- WADA would not own the original artwork, or exclusive rights to the image.
Interested artists must return a Letter of Intent by 5 p.m. August 23, via email to WADAarttubs@gmail.com
. The letter should include the artist’s intent to submit as well as identifying which building or buildings they will be rendering.
Although artists may submit for multiple buildings, one artist will be chosen for each building, allowing six artists to participate in this project.
October 18 at 5 pm – Artwork images due via email.
November 8 – Notification via email and US Mail to 6 Selected Artists
